Matt Jarvis is most known for losing one of the biggest rollercoaster hands (with $3mm in equity on the line) in the history of televised poker at the 2010 WSOP ME final table.

However, he didn’t let that bad beat hold him back as he parlayed his winnings in that tournament into multiple successful business ventures. 

After embarking on a journey of entrepreneurship, Matt was finally able to combine his passions for poker and business into a mobile gaming app called Cash Live Poker.

After getting funding from some of the biggest names in poker, and winning a spot in Snapchat’s Accelerator program, Cash Live is on the trajectory of massive success. 

In this episode, Matt joins the show to share his journey from poker to business and how he plans to give anyone with a mobile app the chance to experience what it feels like to win a massive poker tournament.

About the Author Elliot Roe

Hi, I'm Elliot Roe... And I Help Poker Players Squeeze Every Ounce Of EV From Their Poker Skills and Abilities. Over 7500 poker players have downloaded my Mindset MP3s to boost their focus on the table and to relax and recover post-session. I have personally worked with hundreds more on mastering their emotions and the tabling and developing the “Pro-Athlete Mindset” needed to be successful into today’s games. Creating a strong poker mindset has been the “secret weapon” of the high stakes elite for years now, and I started this site to bring that edge to any player willing to work on that area of their game.
